Instruction at McKinley
Students understand and express ideas and information confidently and creatively in a variety of modes including speaking and writing.
We will start this school year by focusing on the speaking part of this statement with emphasis on collaborative conversations. This will then lead into writing. Our goal is that our students engage in rich and meaningful conversations. Here is a video that shows what this can look like. The pictures below show examples of conversations in McKinley classrooms.
During professional development, teachers looked to the speaking and listening standards to develop quality indicators.
